Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas was injured in the first half of the Hokies' Dec. 31 Sun Bowl showdown with UCLA after taking a vicious hit, according to The Roanoke Times' Andy Bitter on Twitter:

Thomas did not return as UCLA beat the Hokies. Following the game, Thomas spoke about the injury (via Hokies Journal):

The 6'6", 257-pound senior signal-caller has been extremely durable during his time in Blacksburg and has managed to avoid injury since taking over as the full-time starter under center as a sophomore in 2011.    

Although Thomas' injury will have no long-term impact for Virginia Tech, it could affect him moving forward as he prepares for the 2014 NFL draft next spring. Thomas completed 57.3 percent of his passes and threw for 2,861 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions through the Hokies' 12 regular-season games in 2013. 

While there are a handful of talented passers sure to have their names called before Thomas next May, there's no denying that his combination of size, durability and potential make him a top-10 quarterback prospect.
